In this project, partners from across Europe come together to bridge the gap between VET teaching, makers culture and our social responsibility towards fellow citizens with special needs. By working together to develop practical tools we hope to create a more social and hands-on Europe!
During the two-year project, Friesland College together with organisations and colleges from Spain, Cyprus, Italy and the Netherlands will develop a learning programme for VET students and give them the skills to design and prototype social objects which address the needs of people with special needs, using digital tools and machinery such as 3D printing, laser cutting, rapid prototyping and design thinking.
The core idea of the project is to develop a number of practical tools that can be used by VET teachers and students to create a new generation of Young Social Makers.
